465 History Project
Ballard and Nancy Wick, along with several others, have been collecting
items for some time for the Troop 465 history project, and would
like your input and help.

like to scan, and send us, or let us borrow them to scan them for
this history project, it would be most helpful.
of February 2018, Dan Warner is putting together a draft document
to be edited by John Ballard with release by summer camp. We would
then have several review meetings where we could use your comments
and inputs. We have a number of items, including all the yearly
rosters, but could always use more stories of your memories of the
addition to the history document, we plan to set up a history museum
in the not too distant future to display the photos and other articles.
Many of these items will also enhance our website.
of the items needed are a list of the Troop activities and their
locations over the years, such as, canoeing, kayaking, whitewater,
backpacking, hiking, camping, summer camps, training, exploring
caves, historical trips, Philmont treks, Seabase trips, Eagle projects,
Courts of Honor, and many more.
many of you helping (both past and present Troop members and families)
this can be a very rewarding project!!!
also need photographs of the Vaughn Rd Scout hut, or maybe someone
could take some current pictures of it.
submit your items to Dan Warner at firstname.lastname@example.org,
or call him at 678-488-5925, or stop by the Scout hut on Monday
you for your assistance,
